Dear Bandara,

Thanks a lot for this community service which is highly appreciated. I read all the instructions as well as comments but i have following questions. One thing to note is that I am about to start incense stick manufacturing using a Indian machine which is about to arrive in sri lanka hence if you can help will save me lot of time.

1. What is the difference in in Jiggat powder and Joss powder

2. What is the difference in Local Patta Powder and imported Joss powder

3. Is patta powder made of Bomi tree or Daul kurud or use both

4. How to make round bamboo stick instead of square sticks as I am going to use machine I need round sticks, imported one costing at 350 SLR

5. How to make coloured incense sticks, what are the paints used. I am not talking about painting stick bottom tail but the actual stick which is burning. I need red, yellow and green

6. Is there a good incense stick or agarbattie perfume supplier in India / vietknam where I can buy bulk as internet search didn't give me much results.

7. what are the commercial names of those Perfumes, I am looking for rose petals, jasmin, lavander, sandlewood and Vanila perfumes. locally its costing 450Grms 1500SLR to 1750SLR, is there any place we can buy at a lesser cost

8. Any suggested fragrances in addition to the above

9. Why use BB oil , cant we use Coconut oil or any other oil which carries good smell as carrier oil

10. Any health concerns when using such oil, perfumes to end customer which is bad

So sorry about the long list but sincerely wish that you could reply, my email address is vacnal@gmail.com

Thanks once again

WHAT DOES BB MEANS,I WANT TO MEAN HOW MUCH IN OUNCE OR GRAM?AS BANDARA SIR SAYS 1 OUNCE PERFUME IN 2.5 BB OIL!!
bandara (author)  somit sharma1 year ago
BB oil call as "white oil" . Yes 2.5 ounce BB oil to 1 ounce perfume.

white oil you can purchase form the incense stick materials shops.

BB oil is not common liquid paraffin. It may be mixture of solvents. Sri Lankan vendors are not expressing what is the actual

BB is not common white oil (Liquid paraffin). I think DEP or some petroleum based solvent or benzyl benzoate is used in Sri Lanka
